Buchhandlung Hoffmann Bad Harzburg, Germany

It's the weekend! What better to do during the weekend than visiting bookshops you've never been to before? Right, nothing. So, when we were in Bad Harzburg this weekend I decided to visit the local bookshop: Buchhandlung Hoffmann. Not a very inspiring name and as I first passed it after closing time, not a particularly... Continue Reading →

Earth Day Recommendations

Happy Earth Day! I hope you're all enjoying your Sundays. I will, until in the afternoon the storms roll in. Earth Day comes around only once a year, but really every day should be Earth Day. After all, where would we all be without the Earth? As a little inspiration, I've picked out a few... Continue Reading →

March Wrap Up

The end of March is already over a week ago. Last week I wrote a March Wrap Up post, that I then posted. Or so I thought... About three days ago, I realized it had't posted. Neither could I find it anywhere in saved posts. Just seconds ago I opened up WordPress to write another March Wrap... Continue Reading →

Leipziger Buchmesse 2018

Last weekend, I spent seeing a million and one books. No, I didn't count, but there were just So Many Books. After my initial hesitation and very slight freak out over the amount of people, I loved it! There was a program, that counted as its own book, with the size it was. So, I... Continue Reading →

3 Bookish Pinterest DIYs I want to try

There are very many more amazing Pinterest posts though that I'd like to try at one point or another. Here are 3 of my favorites. 1. Book Letters I can't find a... Continue Reading →

I got a Harry Potter mug from my work colleagues, who played Dutch birthday songs as I came into work on the day of my birthday. Alex... Continue Reading →

Archive Bookstore, London

My last post about the bookstores I visited in London in January. This time, a second hand book shop. Or, as I like to call it, the perfect second hand book shop. It was so FULL with BOOKS. Like, they were everywhere. Obviously, they were in the shelves, but also on boxes on the floor... Continue Reading →

Pineapples 🍍🍍🍍, the Azores

Yes, pineapples were a big part of our trip to the Azores. I didn't know this before we actually left for the Azores, but figured it out soon after coming there. So big, they even have two words (in Portuguese) for pineapple: abacaxi and ananas. The way it was explained to me there, was that... Continue Reading →

Azores, it’s all about the cows

Yes, that title does sound a little crazy. It does, however, cover a big aspect of Azores' life: cows. They are everywhere. Seriously, everywhere. Even on the bigger roads, at some point, there will be cows. They need to be moved from the pasture to the milking place and back. We were just driving along... Continue Reading →

Boekenbeurs Glanerbrug 2018

The last two years, I've been going to the Boekenbeurs in Glanerbrug. The money raised there goes to three different charities, which only makes it a better past time. After all, I get books, people in need get money. What's not to love? Last year, and the year before, I had a pretty good haul.... Continue Reading →

Mount Pico

(grab a snack or some tea, it's a long story) It's been a while since our trip to the Azores, but there's still so much to tell. Somehow, I need a little distance first, before I'm really able to write anything down about it. None of my blog posts about the Azores will be in... Continue Reading →

London: Daunt Books

As you may have guessed, I couldn't just go into one bookstore while in London, I had to see more. After all, we did have a whole day with nothing else planned. So, I also checked out Daunt Books in London. Supposedly, it's especially know for it's travel section. I just sort of shrugged as... Continue Reading →

Whale Watching

During our summer holidays we went whale watching. I'd never done anything like it before and wasn't really sure what to expect. Sure, the ocean is huge, but so are whales, right? How hard could it be to spot them? Indeed, it was a summer where I was often wrong. We went whale watching from... Continue Reading →

London: Heywood Hills Books

While I was in London, I took the time to visit a couple of bookstores in the relative vicinity of the hotel we were staying in. One of those bookstores was Heywood Hills Books. I had only looked up the address online and when we got there it seemed to be a small shop. We... Continue Reading →

Free Little Library, Ponta Delgada

The Azores aren't just about hiking, swimming and great views. There are also books! I didn't see a proper book store, though perhaps I didn't look closely enough. I did however happen across a free little library. With opening times! Unfortunately I was not able to go see it again when it was actually open,... Continue Reading →

Unhaul 2017 Part 2

As you know, I've been doing a decluttering challenge last month. It was amazing, but also meant that I had to let go of a few books. Books I've gotten, but so far never read and books I've read but won't be rereading. I've done the same thing (letting go of books twice a year,... Continue Reading →
